Abstract:
This study examines the potential of the area along Sonoita Creek upstream from Rio Rico, Arizona, 8-1/2 miles to Lake Patagonia dam, for water production from the shallow alluvial Sonoita Creek aquifer using geologic and hydrologic surveys made in 1977. The aquifer was divided into two geographical regions. Sources of recharge to and discharge from each region were examined and a quantitative water budget was made for each region. The three potential sources of water, the extractable stored volume, the rejected recharge, and the natural discharge were quantified, and the feasibility of exploiting each was discussed, for an emergency supply and for a sustained yield production.
